National Pride

I feel so sad that some of us seem to have lost pride in our Nation. Or may be they put their own thoughts above National pride or respect. You may be wondering what brought this up in my mind. Well, there are two instances of protests against death sentence – in Bangluru and JNU, Delhi. I am also against death sentence except in exceptional circumstances. But in these two places the demonstrations were against hanging of Yakub and Afzal Guru under the garb of protests against death sentances. These two persons had been hanged for acts of terrorism leading to deaths of many innocents including women & children. Don’t you think that these were exceptional circumstances? Wouldn’t their protests bring embarrassment to our government in international forum? Are these protesters backing terrorism killing innocents? Don't the political leaders backing them also show disrespect to national pride?
